The need to preempt Iran and export gas to Egypt was the reason the government gave to push through its controversial plan for Israel's natural gas. Now, this reason may no longer exist.08:52 31.08.15 | 1 comments
This isn’t about the fact that the Syrians don’t have a right to supply arms to Lebanon. This is about believing anything Assad and his regime say. Supplying and training Hezbollah with sophisticated weapons is not the same as selling arms to the Lebanese government. Hezbollah is a privately controlled militia... that was responsible for a violent military coup. Hezbollah’s arms de-stabilize Lebanon. It is the reason the Lebanese are on the verge of a civil war even today. Assad has made overtures to Egypt and the Saudi Kingdom, about some nonsense that they can be a stabilizing force. The only thing the Syrians are turning out to be... is a source for instability, provocation and an eventual war.
